Environmental Justice

Environmental justice is "the principle that all people and communities have the right to equal environmental protection under the law, and the right to live, work and play in communities that are safe, healthy and free of life-threatening conditions." A major part of environmental justice is environmental racism, "actions and decisions that, whether by conscious design or institutional neglect, result in the disproportionate exposure of people of color to environmental hazards and environmental health burdens."

Intersectional Environmentalism (intersectionalenvironmentalist.com)

This is an inclusive version of environmentalism that advocates for both the protection of people and the planet. It identifies the ways in which injustices happening to marginalized communities and the earth are interconnected. It brings injustices done to the most vulnerable communities, and the earth, to the forefront and does not minimize or silence social inequality. Intersectional environmentalism advocates for justice for people and the planet. — Leah Thomas
